We got about 8 inches here in ohio. The aggressive tires on the pro4x were nice. The truck itself does pretty good. Going down a snow covered grade it seems like rear of the truck wants to get light and squirm a little bit. Wish I could figure out how to disable traction assist from the computer. Even if you push the button and turn it off. It still tells you how to drive and tries to assist you. Should be some type of override to fully disengage it. No problems in snow so far...

What's the verdict in the snow with the owners? So far I am not too impressed? only been out a couple times now. Just got about 4 inches of slippery snow today but truck seems heavy and kinda clumsy? Anyone else...? I have the stock p4x tires with probably over half tread gone...

I live in Ohio also. We had snow and the roads are covered in slush. I have two hundred fifty pounds of extra weight over the rear axle and still the truck had little traction and was loose on the road. I am not impressed with the factory installed Grabber tires. Had to go into four wheel drive to get out of my driveway.
Coming home in the snow the truck started a soft regen----NO WAY. Put the truck in the driveway and decided the regen is going to have to wait for better road conditions.
Love the truck though.

They take the cheapest tires they can find then spec them down even further, then have the tire manufacturer make them.

SW Ohio here and similar conditions - maybe a couple of inches. Even wet pavement and the rear can get loose pretty quick. I may be in the market for tires before the season is over.
